Question: How has Christianity come to be accepted as part of Vaishnava life? There are several devotees I know who also claim to be Christians, how can this be? I do not see how these two can go together since they worship different gods. The biblical father god encouraged blood offerings for sin, that is NOT Krishna consciousness or at least not as I see it. I may be wrong about this so I decided to write to you for an answer.

Few devotees would like to prepare for second initiation. How shall I prepare them? Do you have some special requirements? I am aware of those standards presented on BVKS.COM. We do not have any brahminical tests in our yatra.
Common practice in CZ is to use flowers for several days as a decoration of the altar (if they still look fresh). Is that ok? I do not feel completely comfortable with it.
While taking prasadam in a house of one grhastha – they were not used to close the altar of Gaura Nitai deities while honoring prasadam. They told us that there is no harm of eating in front of Gaura-Nitai, because they like to see devotees honoring prasadam. This they have supposedly heard from Salem devotees. I have never heard this. Could you please comment?
If a devotee abandons his wife because he fell in love with another married woman and he starts to live with her – to which extend he shall be accepted by other devotees and community of vaisnavas? Is there any way to rectify this act? Can he lead a kirtan in the temple and so on?
Is there any authorized standard of purity for cooking in the kitchen regarding our clothing. In our yatra it is usually set up as a standard to have only completely clean clothing. One is not supposed to cook in the clothes in which he ate or passed water. I didn´t see these standards so strict in India. I personally follow that – but I am not sure what to set up here as a standard. Especially when we are worshiping Guru Gauranga altar in the preaching centre.

I often encounter a problem. When I am offered demigod prasadam, it puts me in an awkward situation.
Sometimes I take a little and sometimes I say that I am fasting. What is the principle? Should we accept it or not? I heard in one Bhagavatam class by a devotee that demigods first offer food to the Lord and then honor it because they are also devotees of the Lord. Thus in one sense their prasadam is the Lord's maha-mahaprasadam. I am not sure of my understanding of that point in the lecture. Please enlighten me.^ Show less

Question: Our son Yadunandana (4.5 yrs) came one day after the school (run by devotees) and asked why he had to say "excuse me" after belching. We can hear Srila Prabhupada sometimes making heavy noises during the class and we have seen many sanyassis pass air or belch and say nothing. Could you please explain how one should behave according to vaisnava ettiquete when one happens to burp, belch or spit etc. while with others?

Question: Maharaj, I wish to know if addition of some lines like jhalmala jhalamala bole etc by some devotees is acceptable? These lines are not there in the song book but some devotees say they are extra lines which is added to enhance the song. I wish to know if this practice is right or wrong.
